Today, we are very pleased to announce the launch of our membership with CPD (Continuing Professional Development).
The CPD accreditation is a positive programme utilised by a wide number of professional bodies, helping to encourage workplace learning through experience and training. The focus of CPD is firmly on results, allowing professionals to chart their development through a series of resources and events, designed to support skills and development over time.
As a business, LDF consistently encourage ongoing learning through our training and development programmes and so to announce the ability for customers to benefit from CPD accreditations is an exceptionally positive step for us.
What does this mean for LDF?
In the UK, over 450 professional bodies with an average of 20,000 employees per organisation, benefit from the scheme, which means a total of 9 million are involved in professions alone. This demonstrates just how important and worthwhile the CPD accreditation is and we’re delighted to be a part of this. Many sectors the CPD covers are ones LDF are active within and this will assist us in our marketing strategy moving forward.
Benefits to LDF?
We hope that our ability to offer CPD points on future key materials and presentations will give our customers an increasingly positive experience. It will also assist us to demonstrate our expertise and knowledge of key sectors such as; legal, education, hospitality and healthcare.
We are always actively seeking ways to help our clients, further to the products and services we offer. Treating customers fairly is very important to us and this is just a little added extra that can go a long way to help.
Marketing Coordinator, Gemma Doughty, said “Membership was determined by an initial dialogue with the CPD Assessors to access LDF suitability”
“In line with our current focus and strategy behind educating our customers through thought leadership this is a positive step in the right direction and will allow us to present at conferences & events as experts within these sectors.”
